Erykah Badu and Mos Def teamed up with Mark Ronson as he choice them for the RE:GENERATION Project which is where 5 DJs Remix, Re-create and Re-Imagine different styles of music. Using this concept they produced the song ‘A La Modeliste’ which they dropped a video for and also performed the track last night on the David Letterman show.
Check out the video and the performance after the jump!
Wednesday Night Nas celebrated his 38th birthday in New York with some of his closest friends, the list included Jay-Z, Ne-Yo, Carmelo Anthony and wife La La, DJ Khalid, Common, Mos Def and old group member Az from the Firm (Classic Album BTW) Foxy Brown seemed not to be in attendance maybe she didn’t get the memo.
Nas shares his birthday with his friend the Late Amy Winehouse who many don’t realize her song ‘Me and Mr Jones’ was about Nas. But The most notable picture I saw from the birthday bash was that of Nas and old Rival Jay-Z, last month when Lil’ Wayne’s Tha Carter IV leaked and people heard the Nas assisted Outro the entire Internet was shouting Shots had been fired
“There go my n***a Wayne, let them n***as hate
I love my n***a Drake say “we ain’t got time to respond to n***s”
I didn’t feel those lyrics were shot at Jay and by the looks of the pictures neither did he. Happy 38th Nasir Jones
